of the government. let's ask the former office depot ceo, and we are pleased to welcome you now. steve, good to see you, thanks for being here. >> good to be here, david. david: the republican message, what's he got to make clear about the limit of the role of the government in our lives? >> well, i think if you talk to most business people, they say there's three legitimate roles for government in business. the first is regulation. from a regulatory stand point, the role of the government is to level the playing field, establish the boundaries, make sure that consumers are not getting hurt, but then get out of the way and let businesses compete, not continue to change the rules of the game once you're into the game, not continue to issue regulation after regulation. that is the regulation. second is taxation. america's taxed as the highest rate in the world. there's loopholes, and peek talk about it. the extraordinary rates drive investments overseas and diminish job creation here in the u.s.. we have over $2 trillion in cash sitting on balance sheets of u.s. corporations. taxation is an important

against steve stricker which brought the cup back to europe. it was a shocking performance on the part of the americans. europe went out and won the first five matches yesterday, and that really instilled a belief in the rest of the team. in the end, europe won 8 1/2 points out of a possible 12. for an improbable victory. there was a little bit of drama yesterday, as well, because rory mcilroy, as you know, is the world number one. but he had mistakenly looked at the time sheet, and saw that it was a tee off time for 12:25 p.m. so in actual fact that was eastern time instead of central time. so he was due at the course way before 11:25. but he didn't arrive until seven minutes before his tee time. eventually getting here courtesy of hitching a ride with a state trooper. but he managed to make it to the key, casually walked out onto the course and brought home a valuable point to the european team. but had he not made it here on time this would have been a totally different story. however there was a nice moment when the capital jose maria olazabal made a little presentation to him as t
